In detail

improved alarms!

Many new alarms have been added to detect common kernel configuration errors and old alarms have been re-worked to avoid notification floods.

Alarms now support:

  • notification hysteresis (both static and dynamic)


  • notification self-cancellation, and

  • dynamic thresholds based on current alarm status


Also, a new alarms log:


improved alarm notifications

netdata now supports:

  • email notifications
  • slack.com notifications on slack channels
  • pushover.net notifications (mobile push notifications)
  • telegram.org notifications

For all the above methods, netdata supports role-based notifications, with multiple recipients for each role and severity filtering per recipient!

Also, netdata support HTML5 notifications, while the dashboard is open in a browser window (no need to be the active one).


All notifications (HTML5, emails, slack, pushover, telegram) are now clickable to get to the chart that raised the alarm.

other improvements

  • improved IoT support!

    netdata builds and runs with musl libc and runs on systems based on busybox.

  • improved containers support!

    netdata runs on alpine linux (a low profile linux distribution used in containers).

  • Dozens of other improvements and bugfixes
